  • Notes 
    • "'Council held in Boston, New England July 30, 1686'. The Keeper of the Prison at Cambridge petitions 'that Robert Blood the Younger prisoner for Debt... upon the 25th of May 1686... did break prison,' the keeper 'praying that he may have a warrant... to apprehend and return the said Blood to Prison until he shall have satisfied the debt...' 'Ordered: that the Secretary do forthwith grant his warrant...'
      The Imprisonment apparently was the outcome of a suit which appeared in Suffolk Court in April 1685, the case of Samuel Knight of Woburn vs. Robert Blood, Jr., Knight presenting a bill of goods dated December 21, 1684 and consisting of 'trucking cloth, powder, shot, powder horns, tobacco, flint, spring knives, rings, tin shoes,' amounting to L6-09-11. These were obviously for trading purposes, primarily, it would seem, with inland settlers. His brothers Simon, age 23, and Josiah, age 21, testified that Robert had told Knight he was 'willing to reckon with him.' Robert was credited with 'bear skins, rackoon skins, deer skins, bever skins, 'etc and his (tin?) and horse, together with goods returned. Unfortunately the goods did not cover the bill and he was forced to languish in jail. A deposition made in 1694 shows he had been released by 1688, but details are not known. Some years later he removed to South Carolina and in June of 1701 a guardian was appointed for his son (Ebenezer) (though this does not mean he died in this year). Whether monetary troubles were the cause of his removal or not is not know.
      Possibly he went (to South Carolina) with Samuel Page of Groton who removed to that state, but returned in 1718.
      (Robert was listed as deceased in Middlesex deed 21:429 dated 1720.)
